Know More about this tour

Following hotel pickup in the morning, your full-day Lima experience begins with a sightseeing tour through the citys streets and plazas. With your local guide, visit Love Park in the Miraflores district and admire its view of the Pacific Ocean, and then head to Huaca Pucllana, the adobe pyramid that was ancient Limas ceremonial heart.

Next, drive through the district of San Isidro, the financial center of the city, and then on to the citys main square, Plaza Mayor, where youll see the Government Palace and Limas town hall. Then visit two of the citys most popular attractions, the 16th-century Cathedral of Lima and the Convent of Santo Domingo, where two saints Martin de Porras and Rosa de Lima lived in the 17th century and where their remains rest today.

Your sightseeing tour ends with a buffet lunch at a seaside restaurant in Miraflores that serves regional and international dishes.
After lunch, the second half of your Lima tour starts by going back in time to ancient Peru at the Larco Museum, housed in a colonial mansion that dates back to the 1700s and was built on top of a pyramid from the 7th century. With your guide, tour the museum, learning about pre-Columbian culture and admiring the museums collection of artifacts, including ceramics, jewelry and more than 50,000 pots.

Finally, finish up your tour at the Magic Water Circuit, one of the largest water shows in South America. Stare in awe at the extravaganza of water displays, lasers, lights, music and images that takes place across a complex of several large fountains.

  • .... we meet a new friends in this tour and enjoy their company. we have a funtastic time together 'till the end of our tour.

  • Tour was great, guides informative.

  • We liked Larco museum and water show. The city tour was so-so.

  • Collected at the time appointed and toured the city for the half day. Tour guide was great and very knowledgeable spoke English very well and was easy to understand. The lunch supplied was a good buffet at a great restaurant overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The food offered a great selection. The afternoon tour commenced later in the day and again was collected promptly and taken to Larco Museum which was very interesting with a enormous collection of pottery from Inca times. The water circuit was very popular and the water show which lasted about 15 minutes was great.

  • Tour was split in two parts with four hours of nothing in between. This tour was not as advertised. The guides were good and some of the experience was worthwhile but I think because there were only myself on the morning portion, and only four people on the afternoon portion, I felt some advertised content was rushed or left out. Anyway in a single tour supposed to last 11 hours, 4 was spent doing nothing and about 3 more sitting in Lima traffic.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Had a great day around Lima!

  • What a day! Thought the time spend at the shopping mall could be shorter.

  • We were not told we would be dropped at a restaurant and then would have to wait 3.5 hours for the second part of the tour. The guide in the City tour part was a bit aloof. The main square was beautiful, as was the cathedral. We thought the Museum might be boring, but it was wonderful. A private collection, it covered both pre-Inca and Inca times. The grounds were beautiful. A pisco sour really sour and the lighted fountains, with a laser show, capped off the afternoon/evening tour. Second half of tour was great. Gabriella did a good job and gave excellent info about Peru history. I would recommend the latter tour, not the first part. Better to schedule two separate tours.

  • Well organized and very enjoyable. Tour guide was pleasant and knowledgeable.
